What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a safe, non-medicated alternative treatment that focuses on information (feedback) of your brainwaves (neuro) and helps you reinforce change in your brainwave activity. The brain will normally self-regulate to calm down your nervous system to help reduce symptoms. Without the ability to self-regulate, your central nervous system won’t be able to avoid conditions like anxiety, depression and even physical symptoms. Biofeedback is different from Neurofeedback due to the focus on autonomic functions.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is a non-medicated therapy that focuses on learning how to control your bodily functions like breath, heart rate, and skin temperature. During your sessions, we’ll control electrical sensors to you that will help give us information (feedback) about your body (bio). We’ll be able to record your data for analysis and help you control subtle changes like relaxing muscles or reducing stress. Compared to Neurofeedback, Biofeedback helps you control your autonomic functions. When you have power over your body, you’ll be able to lead a healthier lifestyle.*

What is QEEG?

A quantitative electroencephalogram (QEEG) is a brain map that measures electrical patterns in your cortical activity. Usually quantitative EEGs are computer analyses of your EEG data. We’ll compare your EEG data to a reference database to find similarities to your current conditions. When we find certain patterns, they can be the result of depression, anxiety or many other conditions. We’ll use your QEEG data for your treatment plan and progress.*

My husband and I have two special needs children and are very involved in their education. We only use the best providers and Dr. Roseann is simply the best. From evaluations to neurofeedback to parent coaching, she has been there for my family. She is so knowledgeable and experienced in so many areas and we know that we can always run anything by her.  One of our children has Autism and PANS with significant communication and behavioral issues and Dr. Roseann and her staff have always given us the most loving care and work to support his sensory needs. I can’t recommend Dr. Roseann and Associates more highly.

Dr. Roseann literally saved my daughter’s life. Through testing, her team identified that she had Dyslexia and get her the right supports at school. The care that she and we received from the staff and her therapist over the years has been a lifeline.

The 360 Reboot program turned my daughter’s life around. She had been plagued with anxiety her whole life and never responded to regular talk therapy. With intensive neurofeedback, biofeedback, psychotherapy, and parent coaching, she was able to break the anxiety cycle. She is a happy young adult and we couldn’t be prouder of her and more grateful for the staff at Dr. Roseann and Associates.

As an educator myself, I had seen several of my students make positive and often dramatic changes after going to Dr. Roseann’s center. When my son started having problems at school paying attention, I knew that my husband and I wanted Dr. Roseann’s experienced care. She was spot on in diagnosing the issues with the brain map and walked us through the step by step process of what we needed to do. Our son and family have benefited so much from the center’s help. He never needed medication and with neurofeedback and dietary changes, he became the best person he could be. It has been several years and my son is now thriving in college.

As a therapist myself, I knew that Dr. Roseann is one of the top mental health experts on PANS/PANDAS and Lyme Disease. So when I became sick, she was the first person I called for help. She was able to connect me with the right Lyme medical experts so I could get treatment. I was very lucky that the biofeedback and BRT at the center started helping my headaches and anxiety immediately. I am about 90 percent better and I wouldn’t be feeling so great if it weren't for Dr. Roseann.

After my son with ADHD and anxiety had terrible reactions to medications, we went to Dr. Roseann on the recommendation of our pediatrician. She helped us to understand why his brain and body was reacting to medication and why he was experiencing anxiety, focus, and impulse control issues. After 10 years of many therapists and psychiatrists, we finally saw some major change in on our son with neurofeedback, BRT, and counseling. His therapist helped him and us improve his executive functioning and alertness. It was scary to see him suffer so much on ADHS medications and I am so glad he is happy and our home life isn’t so stressful.

As a family highly impacted by the 12-14 tragedy in Sandy Hook, Dr. Roseann and staff has given us help over the years. From learning how to use EFT/Tapping to manage our anxiety to neurofeedback, everyone in our family has been helped. We learned so much about how trauma impacts the brain and the neuroscience part of stress, anxiety, and trauma. When confronted with such stress, you can’t imagine things will get better, but they did with their help.

As a physician, I knew exactly where to take my son for the best possible mental health care. My son was so anxious from an undiagnosed learning disability and a poor school program. Dr. Roseann evaluated my son and gave us recommendations that were so specific, we could after many years of pushing and prodding the school, finally get him the right program at school. Her center was able to provide all the therapies he needed to improve his cognitive processing speed and reduce anxiety with the highest level of clinical care.

Michael B

Our adult daughter had treatment resistant depression and was suffering when we came to Dr. Roseann’s center. Even though other therapists had turned us away, her team supported our daughter in a way that we had never experienced. With intensive counseling and neurofeedback, she was able to not be anxious for the first time in her life and her depression stopped.

Our time with Dr. Roseann and her staff during our 360 Reboot intensive therapies program was special. Our little guy gained so many skills in a short time and we received so much education about his needs and what we needed to do along the developmental spectrum to keep him growing in the right direction. We wish we had found her center sooner!

Dr. Roseann treated my ADHD when I was a teenager after my parents tried medications for years on me. I hated every minute of those medications and I felt so irritated all the time. After about 18 sessions, it was like my brain shifted and I woke up from a fog. It has been 6 years since I finished neurofeedback and my attention is awesome!

You have accomplished wonders for my grandson. He is now the child he was always meant to be. Your program was the best investment in his life. I worked with so many young college students who struggled with ADHD and I did not want to see that happen to him. I am so happy that he has been able to benefit from the program. I tell everyone with a child who has attention issues that your program works wonders.

Common Neurofeedback & Biofeedback Questions:

How Does Neurofeedback Work?

Neurofeedback involves helping individuals modify their own brainwave activity to promote a healthier lifestyle. With the use of computers, we’ll be able to monitor and record your brain function and show it to you. We’ll train you to promote or reduce different brain wave frequencies, and reward your brain when it changes its activity. The purpose of doing this is so that you will begin to constantly produce more appropriate patterns. Reinforcements help produce new electrical activity in the brain, and help “shape” your brainwave activity to a more desirable, regulated performance. These changes will result in symptom reduction and help your brain self-regulate.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

Before sessions begin, we’ll first have to study your brainwave activities. To do this, we’ll conduct a QEEG Brain Map, a procedure that involves recording and analyzing EEG activity. After your Brain Map, you’ll meet with Dr. Roseann to review it and make a treatment plan. After we put the protocol into place, you can immediately start your Neurofeedback sessions. The number of sessions that you will attend will be based on your treatment plan, and range from 20 to 100 or more sessions.* Most individuals living in New Haven County will come in two times per week. Sessions involve placing sensors on your scalp and ears while you receive brainwave reinforcement through watching a movie.

How Do I Get Started with Neuro/BioFeedback?

If you are living in New Haven County, please call our Ridgefield office to schedule your QEEG Brain Map. We also offer regular free Neurofeedback information sessions. To view our schedule –click here–

How Do You Know Which Therapy I Need?

After you have a QEEG conducted, Dr. Roseann will sit down with you, review your results and make treatment recommendations based on your current conditions and clinical intake. We proudly serve New Haven County with these alternative therapies.  

How Do You Monitor Progress?

We monitor your progress in three different ways:

  • Through QEEGs at regular intervals to objectively take a look at your brain functioning
  • Through data collection at every Neurofeedback session
  • Through a regular, customized symptom checklist progress monitoring

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

Neurofeedback is a safe, alternative treatment that can help children and adults suffering from certain conditions. Over the past 40 years, there have been thousands of research studies that help support the efficacy of Neurofeedback. In 2013, The American Academy of Pediatrics gave it a Level 1 effectiveness rating for the treatment of ADHD, which is the same effectiveness as medication.*
